This has been the coldest Arizona winter we have experienced in the seven years we have been coming here. Until this week, the daytime high has been in the 50s for several weeks. We were getting tired of it. We come here to be in shorts and t-shirts--not possible in these temps.
Look at what we woke up to last week.
That's right--frost on the truck windshield! Brrr.
Then came the rains. See the water, running in the street? And the rain running off the neighbor's roof?
Finally, this week, we are having highs in the low 60s and lots of sunshine. And the good side of the rain is the flowers on the cactus. Beautiful!
